PETALING JAYA (Aug 4): The Prince Hotel & Residence KL has been taken over by French hospitality group AccorHotels and rebranded as Pullman Kuala Lumpur City Centre Hotel & Residence.
The latest Pullman hotel was officially launched on Aug 1, said the group in a statement.
“We are very excited to add this much-loved hotel to the fast-growing Pullman network,” said chairman and chief executive officer of AccorHotels Asia Pacific Michael Issenberg.
“The number of high-profile hotels that have been rebranded to Pullman in recent months including The Park Lane Hong Kong, the former Hilton on the Park in Melbourne and now the Prince KL is a testament to the brand’s ability to meet the needs of today’s global nomads,” he added.
The property will be fully refurbished over the next two years to meet Pullman’s standards, but the hotel will remain open and upgrading works will be carried out in a minimally disruptive manner, said the group.
The new Pullman KL will feature six dining outlets including a coffee lounge, a poolside terrace grill, Japanese and Chinese fine dining. Located in the Golden Triangle of Kuala Lumpur, the hotel will boast meeting facilities such as a 580 sq m grand ballroom and 11 meeting rooms.
This will be the fourth Pullman in Malaysia and the 56th in Asia Pacific. The company aims to reach a global network of 100 hotels by year-end.
